Certainly, that is how Bierce spent the majority of his days
Certainly, that is how Bierce spent the majority of his days. Born in Ohio to a large fundamentalist religious family in 1842, Ambrose Gwinnett Bierce received his unusual first name through his father’s odd custom of inflicting names beginning with the letter A upon all his children. By the time he got around to his ninth offspring, the best his father managed to come up with was Ambrose.

Ambrose Bierce: Alone in Bad Company. Christopher K. Coleman uses Ambrose Bierce’s few autobiographical writings about the war and a deep analysis of his fiction to help readers see and feel the muddy, bloody world threatening Bierce and his fellow Civil War soldiers.

Roy Morris does an honorable job in putting forth whom he believes Bierce was and consequently why he wrote. Morris is certainly sympathetic but by no means gushy. Although some might be distracted by his psychoanalytic queries, they are important questions in understanding literature and authors. His persuasiveness is due to his ability to convey factual content without boring the reader; and there are plenty of facts concerning Bierce, his family, friends, contempories, as well as the social and political atmospheres over his 7 decades. Finally, the books organization saves discussion of Bierce's mysterious disappearance for the last - where it should be.
